California becomes a ‘sanctuary state’ for ‘transgender children’

California on Sunday became the first “sanctuary state” for so-called “transgender children” seeking drugs and surgeries to alter their physical manifestations of secondary sex characteristics, which are restricted in some states.

As Breitbart News reported in September, Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) signed the bill, SB 107, into law. It was sponsored by State Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), who often sponsors provocative LGBT legislation. The law officially takes place on January 1, 2023.

The law “would prohibit a health care provider, health care service plan, or contractor from disclosing medical information relating to a person or entity that allows a child to receive health care or gender-affirming mental health care in response to a criminal or civil action, including a foreign subpoena, based on the law of another state that permits a person to bring a civil or criminal action against a person or an entity that enables a child to receive gender-affirming health care or mental health care.”

It would also “prohibit the enforcement of an order based on the law of another state authorizing a child to be removed from their parent or guardian on the basis that that parent or guardian authorizes their child to receive health care. or gender-affirming mental health care. ”

There is no scientific or ethical consensus on whether children can decide they have a gender identity different from their biological sex, which activists say is “assigned at birth” by parents. doctors, but is determined by the chromosomes.

There is also no consensus on the age at which children should be able to seek what activists call “gender-affirming” treatments. Activists want minors to be able to obtain such treatment without parental consent.

The Biden administration supports the idea that “transgender children” exist and has lambasted states where Republican governors have signed laws restricting or criminalizing such treatment to protect children from abuse.

LGBT activists have tried to censor conservatives, like author Abigail Shrier, who have highlighted the negative effects of ‘gender-affirming care’ on minors, and the phenomenon of ‘de-transitioners’ who later try to reverse the effects of this “care”, often without success.

In November 2022, the New York Times admitted that “gender-affirming” drugs could cause long-term harm to “transgender youth” and noted the growing concerns of the scientific community about such treatments.
